Hubby did very well yesterday and managed to get the remaining tiles and adhesive off the walls today.
The domino effect has begun though and he has had to go out and buy some plaster, floor sealant, and levelling paste plus the tools to do the job.
While he was out, I did the housework and walked the dog.
He had a mare of a trip as the days of going into a DIY store and being spoilt for choice are now long gone. Despite what was advertised on the internet (which is why he went) the three establishments he tried had nothing on his list.
As always, he has a Plan B, C and D and came home with those in the back of the car with the seat down.
The floor has now been sealed and tomorrow will see him plastering the walls and later using the levelling compound on the area where the shower tray is going to sit so that it can ‘go off’ overnight.
This afternoon, I went up the road to get some plastic tile trim.
I also did a bit of shopping, the post on that follows.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

Fun times 👍
It’s at times like this we really miss the boat!
I bet! Even when our hot water heater pffts I say I’m so glad we aren’t living in camper anymore. But redo of a bathroom is challenging, we wish you best wishes😁
Thanks Sarah. We replaced the bath for a shower cubicle in the bungalow and confused the hell out of the dog as he used to jump in the bath if we had a thunderstorm. We didn’t have to retile though as we managed to get a contrast. That was over 25 years ago, so it’s been a while!
Aw. Well it is always an adventure even for the furry friends
I’m glad your hubby didn’t run out of plans even though the DIY stores ran out of everything!
He always has a back up plan.
With the ongoing supply-chain issues and shortages it is essential to have a plan B!! At least it was productive!
Always help to have an alphabet of plans 😉😉
and sub sections…………….
Got any pictures? I know you’re not done, but inquiring minds are interested…
I am taking some as we go and will put them all on when we’re finished.
